A215228 - Judith Ripka Stingray Embossed Leather Zip Around Wallet
I was so happy to get this clutch wallet at a "Lunchtime Special Price" and planned to wear it with my Judith Ripka embossed snakeskin clutch bag. But the pockets for the credit cards are too tight and I had to fight to get them in and out. I also had a problem with the compartment for paper money. It is not wide enough and the bills buckle in the middle.
Please re-design and bring it back as I love the soft stingray embossed leather and the great pull tab.
Unusable for credit cards
Unfortunately, other reviewers were right: the credit card section is too tight. I was able to put one card and force a second one in -- no more after that (to stiff, too loaded). You definitely can’t reach its seven-card capacity!
Also, there’s no dedicated see-through slot for driver’s license. I think this is a must-have for any wallet -- women’s or men’s alike.
So, usability killed this one. Too bad, because it is beautiful otherwise. Since I have several Ripka bags with the same embossment, a matching wallet would have been nice…
SO MUCH< SO WRONG !!!
I was excited to get this wallet on clearance but after trying to load it with my credit cards (which by the way is IMPOSSIBLE!) & trying to put it in my purse (it is quite large forget small purses!) I now have to send it back!! I suppose I could make due somehow if it was only $20.00 instead of almost $60. with tax & shipping !!! Bummer !!!
Excellent Quality with Beauty
I purchased the wallet in light grey and will also be purchasing it in black. The wallet is an excellent size with great organization. I was also very impressed with the quality of the zipper, which is so important in a wallet. There are several easy to use credit card slots, zippered area for coins, and areas for money, receipts, etc. The wallet has beautiful lining fabric, amazing hardware, and you also receive a storage bag. This designer has even finshed the fabric edges on the inside of the storage bag which is great attention to detail. I would highly recommend this wallet to anyone who desires a quality product in every detail. I will certainly be purchasing more wallets and handbags from Judith Ripka Designs.
CREDIT CARD SLOTS ARE TOO SNUG!
Beautiful wallet so I added a star for that. Otherwise it is a one star because I tested it with ONE card and I had to really struggle to get it back out. So I consider that a defect and so did customer service. Judith please design a little larger size wallet with roomier credit card slots!!!! That is so crucial. And women carry many receipts etc so bigger is better!
